If you have a fascination for amber you cannot miss this museum. And if you have not a fascination with amber, you will, by the time you leave the museum. There are both natural forms of the fossilised resin and the jewels into which amber is set. Rings necklaces and earrings are beautifully presented. An exhibit at the back demonstrates how amber is cut and processed and extracted. You will see the spectroscope used to test for the quality of this organic jewel. There is also an exploration of what role amber played in Polish history. And of course, you can buy your own jewel for a souvenir.

Muzeum Bursztynu, Krakow Reviews - Write a Review

  • The museum is in the back of the shop. It's very small but with nice things to see and it's for free.

  • Warto zobaczyć, nawet jeśli jest tylko na 5 minut oglądania. Mocno się zdziwiłam, widząc różne rodzaje bursztynów, a nie tylko ten najbardziej powszechny. Niektóre eksponaty są niezwykłe, jednak kilka gablot znajduje się na takiej wysokości, że niska osoba nie da rady dokładnie zobaczyć ich zawartości.

  • Arcydzieła wykonane z bursztynu, muzeum, sklep i kawiarnia w jednym. Można sprawdzić autentyczność swoich bursztynów
